Commencement 1949 was a grand
occasion — around 600 alumnae re-
turned to enjoy class reunion lunch-
eons, a stimulating business meeting
and the alumnae supper. Alumnae Day
was filled with enthusiasm, chats with
old friends, renewed friendships,
pledges of loyalty and support, and a
show of great pride in the Woman's
Highlight of the business meeting
Saturday afternoon was the presence
of Senator and Mrs. Frank Graham.
Dr. Graham's message to the alumnae
was filled with inspiration and hope
and encouragement. As is always the
case, he gave the alumnae thoughts to
take away with them about pertinent
national and state problems. It was
a particular pleasure to have Mrs.
Graham with us. Her charm and gra-
ciousness make her presence an addi-
tion to any occasion.
The Alumnae Supper attended
by more than 400 Alumnae, guests
and faculty, was most enjoyable. Sarah
Poole Cartland catered and plans for
the supper were made and executed
by Anne Fulton Carter and her social
committee. Daisy chain Sophomores
helped with the serving and tables
were filled throughout the house, on
the upstairs and downstairs porches
and out on the lawn back of the
Alumnae Exhibit: One of the
most interesting features of Com-
mencement was the exhibit of dresses,
scrapbooks, pictures, annuals, etc.,
throughout the Alumnae House. The
exhibit was planned and put up by
Ellen Griffin, Dorothy Clement, Eliza-
beth Hathaway, Agnes Coxe, and
Valerie (Powell) Jones.
Open House at the Alumnae House
from Friday night through Monday
noon was made an enjoyable occasion
by members of the faculty who served
as hosts and hostesses.
It was a grand commencement —
the only thing wrong was that all of
you could not come.
Building Program: Woman's Col-
lege campus is taking on the "new
look" rapidly. The new Library be-
gins to look like a real building, and
the two new residence halls, located
between Kirkland and Weil-Winfield,
is a mass of steel.
Renovation of the dining halls will
be complete when college opens in
September; plans for the Home Eco-
nomics addition, Science Building,
Physical Education Building, and Stu-
dent Union are in the hands of the
Administration Building has had her
face lifted with paint and new fur-
nishings, and several changes have
been made in office locations.
Correction: Through error, the
May issue of the Alumnae News in
the article on the Graduate Program,
failed to list graduate work in Ele-
. mentary Education. A number of stu-
dents have received masters degrees in
this field in years past, and this year
eleven degrees were granted.
FOUNDER'S DAY BROADCAST
As The Alumnae News goes
to press plans are being made to '
broadcast the Founder's Day Pro-
gram, Wednesday, October 5th,
over the Dixie FM Network. Si-
multaneous meetings of alumnae
chapters will be held to hear the
Mr. D. Hiden Ramsey, editor
of the Asheville Citizen-Times,
will be the main speaker, and Mrs.
John Sockwell, Jr., president of
the Alumnae Association, will
participate. Chancellor W. C.
Jackson will preside and the Col-
lege Choir, under the direction of
George M. Thompson, will repeat
I. the Litany.
Make your plans now to attend
your local chapter meeting.
Arrangements for the broad-
cast are being made through Mr.
Gaines Kelley, Manager of Station
WFMY in Greensboro.
Receive Honorary Degrees from the Woman's College
At its fifty-seventh annual Commencement, the Woman's College of
the University of North Carolina conferred honorary degrees on the three
outstanding women pictured above. From left to right, Mrs. Inglis Fletcher,
Doctor of Literature; Miss Katherine Anne Porter, Doctor of Literature;
and Miss Mary E. Leeper, Doctor of Education. In awarding the honorary
degrees, Chancellor Walter Clinton Jackson cited the outstanding work and
significant contributions of these women:
"Miss Mary E. Leeper, pioneer educator and champion of children . . .
Every act of her adult life, every office she has held, every project she
has directed, has been in the interest of children . . . Her vision of edu-
cation as guidance and schools as theatres of opportunity, has heartened
thousands of teachers."
"Miss Katherine Anne Porter, foremost American short story writer . . .
Katherine Anne Porter has made an invaluable contribution to American
writing. She is one of the most accomplished of contemporary American
writers. She is indeed, the best American short story writer at work today."
"Mrs. Inglis Fletcher, distinguished novelist of North Carolina ... A
writer of international recognition, a traveler of warm and intelligent per-
ception, a creative historian and a loyal citizen of the Old North State."

Branch. N. J..
who represented the Class of
1949 at the Co
mmencement Exercises Monday,

in A>-cock Auditorium follows.
Today marks the end of our four
years at the Woman's College — the
end of four years of being integrated
into a body of persons with common
interests and corporate functions, of
learning not only how to make a liv-
ing, but also how to live. But more
important, this is a beginning as well
as an ending. It is our commence-
ment. It is the time for us to move
into the large and more complex soci-
ety of the world, a less well-inte-
grated body, where we can begin ful-
filling the responsibility of educated
persons. It is time for us to move
from our community where life is
stable and happy, where values are
high, and where there is a spirit of
vinselfishness and obedience, to a world
whose peoples often have a twisted
sense of values, an undercurrent of
fear, and a perilous suspicion of each
other, but who are, nevertheless, tena-
ciously struggling for peace among
themselves and other groups.
We entered Woman's College at the
close of World War II when our peo-
ple possessed mixed feelings of thanks-
giving, hatred, fear, and uncertainty.
New scientific discoveries demanded a
change in our values and a new re-
spect for man in relation to the mate-
rial. We have watched the outcome
of the plans for peace from a situa-
tion where estabhshed self-government
was being constantly tested. We dis-
covered that human nature is full of
frailty, that freedom has its limita-
tions, that justice is often an elusive
entity, that cooperation is to be se-
cured only as a result of infinite pa-
tience and pains. But we discovered
much more — that the sense of triumph
which followed the painful striving
for these things was worth many times
the price we paid. As a result of our
efforts, we come to know something
of what it means as free individuals
to resolve our differences and to reach
worthy ends. From this experience
we have formed a wholesome outlook
toward obedience, a respect for, and
confidence in, others, a personal re-
sponsibility for the welfare of the
group, a faith in our fellows and a
trust in God.
Here at the Woman's College, we
have been taught by learned people.
But these people have done more than
teach us; they have followed through
by guiding us. In their interest in our
corporate life and in us as individuals,
they have influenced the other part of
our education — designed to unify our
knowledge and apply it to worthy so-

A LETTER FROM YOUR PRESIDENT
This column belongs to Gibby Sat-
terfield and I wish that we could per-
suade her to continue it. So much
has been accomplished during her two
years in office and so many other
worthwhile things have been started
that our association owes her a great
debt. We new officers are most pleased
that she serves on the Board for an-
other year, where her ideas and her
advice will be invaluable.
It was wonderful to see so many of
you at Commencement. There were
63 5 of us returning for one or more
of the reuning festivities. I felt hon-
ored and pleased to be a part of such
a loyal group and am deeply thrilled
at the possibilities for service inherent
in the office you have given me. I am
grateful for your early support, in-
terest and cooperation, and feel sure
that with the help of Betty Jester and
Evon Dean and the encouragement of
Dr. Jackson and Katherine Taylor,
we can all work together for the
growth and development of our Col-
lege and of our association. To me
the association means the College.
Fundamentally, aren't the two one
and the same?
Your new Board has begun making
plans for another year. Many sugges-
tions have been made; some ideas dis-
cussed, but everything boils down to
the same basic fact each time — we
need funds. As Gibby explained in
her letter to you in February '48, our
association is not yet a financially in-
dependent organization. Out of a pos-
sible 26,000 we have only 2,576 con-
tributing members. We can do very
little toward fellowships, scholarships
or a chapel unless more of us can take
an active part. The thousands of silent
alumnae and the hundreds of "lost"
ones must surely not be willing to
sever their connection with this asso-
ciation which is the closest link to the
College. We are all needed by our
alma mater. Let us all try to awaken
interest among our alumnae friends
and corral them into the fold during
the coming months.
Do remember that your Board is
interested in hearing from you. Please
write us any suggestions which you
may have or any questions which you
would like answered. We can easily
use this space for questions and

Woman^s College Claims
First Woman Judge in N. C.
Woman's College takes great pride
in another First — the appointment of
Susie Sharp, class of '28, Judge of the
Superior Court of North Carolina.
Judge Sharp, appointed by Governor
Kerr Scott, took the oath of office
July 1, 1949.
Her consummate humility indicated
in her question, "Who am I to judge
other human beings?" is one of her
After attending Woman's College
for two years, 1924-1926, Susie trans-
ferred to the University of North
Carolina, where she completed her law
degree in 1929. Since that time she
has practiced law most successfully in
Reidsville as a partner with her father,
J. M. Sharp, in the firm of Sharp &
Sharp. She is the oldest of seven chil-
dren and makes her home with her
parents in Reidsville.
Recalling her undergraduate years
at North Carolina College for Wom-
en, Judge Sharp remarked that even
though she had always wanted to be
a lawyer, after studying physics and
chemistry at the College, she almost
changed her mind and decided to be
a chemist. She recalled with pleasure
her work under Miss Mary Petty, then
head of the Department of Chemistry.
She was most impressed by her
Freshman English teacher, who taught
her the value of being individual, and
says that she enjoyed her course in
American History under Dr. W. C.
Jackson more than any other.
Judge Sharp presided over her first
court July 25 in Rockingham. "I
realize," she added, "that because I am
a woman, the mistakes which I will
inevitably make will probably receive
more attention than if made by a
man. Like the blind man, I will have
to work harder to come up to the
standard of the ordinary, reasonably
In discussing the responsibility of
women in the world today, she said,
"A woman has not fulfilled her re-
sponsibility as a citizen when she does
her household chores and attends her
children any more than her husband
has fulfilled his responsibility when
he pays the bills. A woman's responsi-
bility is no greater, but it is just as
great as that of a man. If one does
not give some thought and attention
to public affairs, one may soon find
out that he or she has no private af-
fairs which require attention. Women
must accept and fulfill their responsi-
bility to vote, serve on juries, boards,
and to do any other task of a public
nature which comes their way. If
they do not, let them be forever
estopped to complain about the way
the country is run, justice is adminis-
tered, or about the smell of politics!"
Woman's College is proud to claim
North Carolina's first woman judge.
Our Governor is to be congratulated
on her appointment. Her fairness, her
sense of justice, her ability to think
with her mind, rather than her emo-
tions, added to her personal charm,
her dignity, and her professional mien,
promise that we will be grateful to
her for so effectively representing
womanhood and the legal profession.
3,446 Libraries in North

lina Library Association in April.
The exhibition of pictures and charts,
prepared by Charles M. Adams, librarian
of Woman's College of U. N. C. and
members of his staff, pointed out that
these libraries make an annual total ex-
penditure of $2,836,077. There are
1,280 librarians in the state.

there are 237 public libraries with 1,-
672.142 volumes. 53 college and uni-
versity libraries with 2.702,726 volumes.
3.151 school libraries reporting 3.534.-
5 62 volumes, and five special libraries
containing 217,706 volumes.
The exhibition points to the need of
more trained librarians in North Carolina
and throughout the nation.

Dr. Francis P. Gaines
Delivers 1949 Baccalaureate
Commencement is a thrilling spectacle
— the triumph of youth. No moment
could be more inspiring than this recog-
nition of young people who have com-
pleted a program of long, hard work,
a program not of their making and often
not of their liking, but a program which
society deems the best preparation for all
future destiny. The dominant emotion
now in responsive hearts is one of con-
Commencement is also a dramatic epi-
sode in a pageant which Americans love
with peculiar passion, the pageant of ed-
ucation. No nation on earth. I presume,
can show more outward devotion, more
inner concern in behalf of the training
of youth. Nowhere are there such huge
investments, such large enrollments, such
mighty groups of professional workers;
nowhere is there more discussion of poli-
cies and processes: nowhere does educa-
tion loom larger in the promises and the
performance of civic leaders. It is among
our supreme undertakings.
Commencement may be therefore a
moment not only to applaud but also to
appraise. What harvest, in largest and
enduring terms, do we get from this crop
which we cultivate so earnestly?
American education may be given large
credit for making us the most powerful
of the world's nations. The recent war
manifested what many of us knew, that
never before has a country had so many
different people of such extraordinary
competence in the mastery of matter. In
mass consideration, that faculty which
for lack of a better term we call the
"know-how" has reached history's high-
est point in our current people of edu-
It follows as a kind of corollary that
education, at least in part, has given us
more of what we thoughtlessly call pro-
gress, more comforts and more luxuries
distributed among more people, than the
world ever saw before. What would be
for citizens of other nations some of the
undreamed extravagances become with us
the commonplace equipment for everyday
living. America has been defined as the
land of the gadget, but that gadget must
be good and it does contribute to the
ease of existence.
Still seeking the wide perspective, we
record that American education has pop-
ularized and enforced the noblest polit-
ical idealism ever accepted by man. The
grand concepts which were born in the
dreams of our wisest and which have been
protected by the daring of our bravest
are the common matters of American in-
struction. Millions of men in the recent
war went forth to battle for convictions,
strong if not always clear, that had been
imparted by school-teachers.
Excerpts from address ot Dr. Francis P.
Gaines, president of Washington and Lee Uni-
versit.v, delivered Sunda.v, May 29, 1949, in
It cannot be said, alas, that education
has contributed greatly to the safety of
the individual or of the world. The
knowledge that perfected our automobile
exacts a terrible toll in human life. The
crooked business executive or despotic
labor leader or clever demagogue is but
the more dangerous because of education.
The miraculous advance of scientific
knowledge in certain phases is the terror
of humanity today. Says one of our
leading statesman: "It is one of the par-
adoxes of our times that m.odern society
has little to fear except man, and, what
is worse, it needs to fear only the edu-
cated man." All Americans with the
laudable passion for education might
ponder long those ominous words.
Nor can it be said that education has
contributed greatly to our happiness. For
all our unprecedented energies of train-
ing, we remain a restless, frantic people,
searching for that which we have not
yet found. The production and processes
of what we might call our escapism,
from the best to the worst, are among
our major businesses — the movie, the
sporting park, the brewery, or what you
will. Titles of best sellers are eloquent
of what we eagerly seek — on the list
recently and stubbornly have been "Peace
of Mind," "How to Stop Worrying,"
now "Peace of Soul." The contract of
the ancient sacrament of marriage — "in
honor preferring one another", is harder
and harder to maintain, and homes are
breaking as never before. Mental cases
multiply. The residue of hatred, largely
a vicious consequence of war, is deep and
firm within us: issues that might be
themes of logical difference are bitter
emotions: groups and blocs glare at each
other: we think, not as the great Apostle
pleaded of what is true and lovely and
pure, but of what is prejudice and fury.
The power of education to give us lofty
and serene moods remains to be demon-
Translated into individual terms, edu-
cation by itself, we know, is not enough.
Beyond the degree is the difficult road to
a greater attainment, to the winning of
an adequate philosophy of life. Without
it the tensions of a human being become
unendurable — a human being endowed
with all hungers and fears of the animal
but with the unceasing restlessness of
much more, of imagination, of ranging
wonder and dream, of dreadful capacity
to suffer that which is not physical pain,
of the unpitying assizes which are con-
Beyond the degree there remains only
the timeless, changeless power that forti-
fies our purposes, lightens our darkness,
lifts from the heart our intolerable re-
morse, gives us perfect assurance of
strength that is greater than our own.
If I could suggest a motto for every
graduating class, a phrase that would
project across the years all the fineness of
experience attained, that would enlarge
the reach of mind and soul into fulfill-
ment of every need or hope, I would
offer the deathless truth phrased by an
"Except the Lord build the house.
They labor in vain that build it:
Except the Lord keep the city.
The watchman waketh but in vain."

to the Seniors
Members of the
I cannot hope to crowd into this
brief moment all the respect, the con-
fidence, the gratitude, the admiration,
?.nd the affection and good wishes I
have for you. I shall not indulge in
advice nor repeat commonplace plati-
tudes about success and happiness.
These things you must find in your
own good way. I can only engage in
the repetition of things that are near
to my heart.
This is the fifteenth time I have said
good-bye to a departing Senior Class.
There has been a steadfast accumula-
tion in these years of a meeting of
minds and hearts between us — these
former classes and myself — and it
rises today to its highest level, a flood
that overflows its bounds. Your cour-
tesy, your generosity, your good sense
and good humor, your devotion to the

Ingenuity and originality plus some
good hard work have paid dividends for

found it a decided advantage to know the
name of each child the day school opened.
"My first day of school will never be

Transportation is the responsibility of
the parents, but some of the children ar-
rive at 8:15 so they can ride with their
fathers and school is over at noon.
Highlights of the year were the Hal-
lowe'en party, with the children in cos-
tumes and surprised to find a gypsy
teaching them, the Christmas party, and
a special program in May. Corsages of
silvered sweet-gum balls and red candles

from a bicycle box covered with brick-
printed paper. Christmas cookies were
mixed and cut by the young cooks and
baked in the school cafeteria through the
cooperation of the dietitian.
Her enthusiasm for her work and her
gratitude to her teachers at Woman's Col-
lege — ^Miss Eugenia Hunter, Miss Patsy
Montague, and Miss Ruth Lee — for their
practical help as well as good training
were in evidence at all times. The love
of the children for their teacher was ap-
parent when they would call out greet-
ings to her as she rode along Main Street.
Miss Thompson has been thrilled by
the advancement of her children in learn-
ing to play together, dramatics, music,
and art. The will to do a good job has
been the secret of her success, but the
labor has been lightened by personal in-
terest in each of the twenty-four whom
she loves as her very own.

chusetts alumnae are so far from Greens-
boro that every bit of college news is
real news, and Mrs, Jester and Miss Tay-
lor are excellent reporters. We were glad
to hear that Dr. Jackson will remain as
Chancellor; that the Alumnae organiza-
tion has proven itself a real force in the
growing program of the College. We
were thrilled by all the changes taking
place on the campus — the closing of
Walker Avenue and the new library. The
proposed plans for other new buildings
sound wonderful. It was good to know
that the Harriet Elliott Social Science
Forum was successful as well as the Vo-
cational Guidance Conference, newly at-
tempted this year.
The final treat of the afternoon was
the colored film of last year's commence-
ment activities which Mrs. Jester showed
for the group. We were all full of ques-
tions and anxious to talk but the time
had passed far too swiftly and our meet-
ing had to adjourn. Our chief request
was that Mrs. Jester and Miss Taylor
make a return engagement soon.

Report of Alumnae Office
The interest and activity in the Alum-

gratifying. During 1947-1948 we were

Sends Nexus from Sumatra
May 18, 1949
Dear Alumnae News:
The February issue of The Alumnae
News arrived here in the "wilds" of
Sumatra just yesterday. May 17th. No
matter how long it takes to get here,
it is a wonderful tie that keeps us
in touch. Bob, my husband, even re-
fuses to let me read it until he has fin-
ished, and I find myself doing the same
with his Alumni Book, Being just 12.-
000 miles from home either via the Pa-
cific or the Atlantic route, you can well
imagine how much we both enjoy scan-
nirg the pages for news of friends and
One of the biggest thrills was acciden-
tally and literally to bump into Anna
(Winslow) Newbold '43, whose ship
had anchored almost at our very front
door. We were living in Sungei Gerong
at the time, and if it had been a week
later when we were to move up to Pa-
lembang, we would have missed Anna.
Anna and her small son were on their
way to Bangkok. Siam, to join her hus-
band, who is with the American consu-
late there. She spent a few days in Sungei
Gerong while the ship was unloading,
but I was sorry we couldn't get up to
the city of Palembang to show her
around. There was a smallpox epidemic
at that time, and people were dying by
the dozens. From her letters from Bang-
kok later, she seemed to be enjoying the
interesting life of Bangkok, And in her
last letter, the big news is that she is
moving to Batavia, Java, Batavia is just
1 J/S hours by plane from here, so I hope
we shall be seeing each other soon. It
certainly is a small, small world after all!
Now for the story of our life. We
were married June 14, 1947, Bob left
for Sumatra in August, and I flew out
here via K. L. M. six months later in
January 1948. We have been here since
then and wouldn't trade anything for
having come. Bob is assistant purchasing
agent for Standard Vacuum Oil Com-
pany. You all have probably been read-
ing of the political upsets in the Dutch
East Indies, now called Indonesia. I
don't pretend to know much about poli-
tics, but assure you that the papers at
home have undoubtedly played the situ-
ation up more than is actually necessary.
We in Palembang have been lucky; there
has been no action in our immediate
vicinity, but we find stories and rumors
drifting in about the action in Java and
northern Sumatra. We here are always
the last to learn the news. Everything
seems to be quiet these days and we
hope they continue to be. The Indies
are still in a horrible mess from the Jap
occupation, and it is a slow recovery they
are making. The housing is much worse
than anything in the states, but even in
the year or so I have been here it is pos-
sible to see the vast change for the better.
Standard 'Vacuum has its refinery in
Sungei Gerong and its offices. There is
quite a settlement of people in that town
with facilities for swimming, bowling,
On June 30. 1949. three mem-
bers of the faculty retired: Professor
J. P. Givler, head of the department
of Biology; Miss Edna Forney, as-
sistant treasurer; and Mrs. J. S.
Hunter, counselor in Gray Hall.
Professor Givler has bought a
home on Westover Terrace, in
Greensboro, and will continue his
hobby of repairing musical instru-
ments. Mrs. Hunter is at home in
Asheville. Miss Edna Forney, who
has been conducting trips for Louck
Tours this summer, will be at her
home on Lake Drive this fall.
tennis, movies, hospital, schools, Palem-
bang is about seven miles from the re-
finery, Palembang being the Big Town,
The native compounds and Pasar (mar-
ketplace) are things you have to become
accustomed to, for they characteristically
are laden with the strange odors of the
Far East; but the European sections are
quiet pretty. We are now living in a
small house and are very lucky to have
one. Our servants number three, but that
doesn't mean we women don't have lots
of work to do. Cooking is a problem
out here, there are so many things we
have to substitute. We close our cook-
books in disgust when we read recipes
calling for whipped cream!
The native people are interesting peo-
ple to know, I told Bob if I were born
a native and had a choice. I would want
to be one of these people. The Malayan
language is a beautiful one and easy, too.
Their religion is Mohammedan for the
most part, and I have been trying to learn
as much as I can about it. The face of a
Malayan is uniquie and their dispositions
are unusually happy ones.
There are about 250 Americans here
and so the community spirit is very high.
For entertainment there are parties and
dances, movies, and our big beautiful
golf course. There is never a dull mo-
ment. We might add that the weather
here in this part of the tropics is ideal,
we always seem to have sunshine and
a cool breeze at the same time. Of course,
it rains here once in a while, but not
enough to make us worry like Californ-
We spent our local leave of two weeks
in Singapore, and needless to say we had
a grand time. We really felt like hicks
from the sticks though. I also spent 10
days in Batavia, Java, recently visiting.
Our next trip will be the renowned island
of Bali. And then our big trip will be
back to the states in August 1950. which
will be here before we know it. Be see-
ing you then.

ALUMNAE EXHIBIT 1896-1949
IS DISPLAYED DURING
Of particular interest to alumnae and
visitors during commencement was the
costume exhibit arranged throughout the
Alumnae House by Ellen Griffin '40,
general reunion chairman, and her com-
mittee. Dresses, scrapbooks, pictures, and
annuals were displayed along with cos-
tumes of various periods from 1896 to
Many of the dresses were exhibited on
mannequins, but the response to the re-
quest was so much greater than was ex-
pected that some were hung near the
tables which were filled with photographs,
programs, etc. Class day dresses, recital
dress, evening dresses, sport costumes, even
pantaloons were on display, marked with
the name of the wearer and the occasion.
Among those who sent dresses were
Susan (Green) Finch '18. who sent her
recital dress; Marguerite Wright, a gym
suit of 1915 vintage; Octavia (Jordan)
Perry '16, her class day dress; Carrie
(Tabor) Stevens '20, a 1920 gym suit;
Annette (Bridges) Dulaney '41, a Sun-
day dress for 1941; Jane Summerell '10,
class day dress; Virginia (Brown) Doug-
las '02. a beaded dress along with several
others; Elizabeth (Sockwell) Scott '34,
an evening dress.
The wedding dress worn by Mrs.
Fodie (Buie) Kenyon '96 and the pic-
ture of Mrs. Kenyon in her wedding
gown made a most interesting display.
An embroidered linen dress and a pair
of pantaloons made by Mrs. Kenyon also
attracted much attention.
A good many of the dresses were given
to the Home Economics Costume Collec-
tion and it is the hope of the Costume
Committee that eventually, dresses of
each year in the history of the college
will be added.
Assisting Ellen Griffin with the cos-
tume display were Elizabeth Hathaway
'25, Dorothy Clement '23, Agnes Coxe
'27, and Valerie (Powell) Jones '40.

New York Radio
Anne Pitoniak '43, 96 Perry Street,

son was married in April, and the
younger son lives at home with her

writes that she had hoped till the last
minute to be able to be present for
the reunion. She thought of the class
of 1899 all day, she says, wondering
who was there.
She and her husband have retired,
both of them having been active in
school work. They have three chil-

Fiftieth Anniversary of
Class of 1899
The Class of 18<)9 had a most enjoy-
able Fiftieth Anniversary Luncheon Sat-
urday, May 28, in the private dining
room of the Home Economics Cafeteria.
Eleven members of the class, several from
earlier classes and Miss Em Austin, Miss
Mary Petty and Miss Annie Petty, special
guests, were present.
White place cards tied with red rib-
bon and printed in red ink marked each
member's place and the class colors were
used in the centerpiece of large crimson
carnations (the class iflower) and fern.
Running from the centerpiece were gar-
lands of fern and carnations. A red rib-
bon from each place card to the flowers
made a very effective table and each per-
son was given a red carnation as a favor.
Each member of the class told what
she had been doing and about her family,
and news of those who could not come
gave much pleasure.
Mrs. Jessie Whitaker Ricks was the
gracious presiding officer in the absence of
Mrs. Rosalind Shepard Willis, who was
unable to come at the last minute.. Ar-
rangements for the meeting had been
macie by Mrs, Willis and Mrs. Ricks.
Eleven members of the class have gone,
and at the close of the meeting the group
bowed heads for a few seconds in mem-
ory of them.
Those present voted to hold the next
'99 Reunion in 1953 with Mrs. Lucy
Coffin Ragsdale and Mrs. Gary Ogburn
Jones as hostesses. The ony regret of
the reunion was that every living mem-
ber of the class could not be present.

"Since the death of my husband in

has been a greater privilege to teach,
because my experience as a wife and
mother has given me a closer contact
with the value of a good foundation
in our education. As Dr. Foust used
to tell us: "He that knows that he
knows is wise, follow him.' It helps to
teach if one knows why one needs to
know. Life has taught me this. There-
fore, my pupils profit partly from my
own experiences. Last winter, some
185 or more pupils and I worked to-
gether in wrestling with arithmetic,
algebra, goemetry, and English in

"Hiking is my hobby — yesterday,
did about 12 miles and that is one of

I am doing fairly well."
Virginia (Terrell) Lathrop has been

Susie (West) Mendenhall wrote re-
cently: "While en route to Brevard,
N. C, taking our son, Dickie, age 15,
to the music camp, Transylvania, we
had a good visit in Asheville with the
Albert Lathrops. Terry Lathrop, age
14, and our son, Dickie, were happy to
renew a friendship begun when they
were very young while we lived in
Burlington. No doubt the Lathrops
heaved a great sigh of relief when
the Mendenhalls left, for our six-year-
old David got lost while looking for
the two older boys. While Virginia
and I scoured the neighborhood on
foot searching for the little lost sheep,
and the males (as usual) were riding
around looking, up drove two Ashe-
ville policemen with lost David. There
was great rejoicing and appreciation
with sighs of relief. All conceded there
is never a dull moment with little boys
around. The Lathrops have such a
lovely place overlooking the Grove
Park Inn Golf Links, so delightfully
cool, I recommend all '23's spend their
vacation there!" The Mendenhalls live
at 197 Highland Avenue, Athens, Ga.

Cook Coleman's home on Spring Garden
Street. The Reunion Luncheon was a
wonderful affair, and all of us are look-
ing forward to our great Twenty-fifth
Reunion in 1951. Do begin to make
your plans to attend!
A special committee, headed by Mar-
jorie Hood and helped by Mary (Polk)
Gordon (who made the attractive little
favors of tiny paper umbrellas bearing
the numerals "26") and Hermene (War-
lick) Eichhorn. had made arrangements
for the Reunion, and for the Luncheon,
which was served buffet style from a
table which was decorated by a center-
piece of yellow and white flowers which,
with the green foliage, bore out the colors
of both the College and our Class.
Following the reading of the minutes
of the last Class meeting, and the signing
of names for the records, there was an
election of officers, as follows: President,
Hermene (Warlick) Eichhorn: Secretary-
Treasurer, Eleanor (Vanneman) Benson.
These officers were elected to serve until
the big Silver Reunion. During the short
business session, expenses of the letter
sent out before the Reunion were met
by a "passing of the hat."
But the principal matter of business
consisted in remembering classmates pres-
ent and absent. Those of you who were
not present were very much missed, and
we look forward to seeing you in 1951.

"One Sunday last winter our min-
ister distributed $10.00 bills to all who
would take them. We were to con-
sider them a talent and increase them
as much as possible. When Harry sug-
gested that we give a concert, I looked
at him in amazement and was quite
pessimistic about its possibilities.
Nevertheless, we set to work with that
in mind and used all our spare time
practicing. It turned out very well,
and we had an enthusiastic audience
of more than 400. Harry wore white
tie and tails, and I wore my wedding
gown (minus the train), white taffeta,
with seed pearl trimming. We assumed
our very best concert manners and
tried to be quite dignified for this one
The local paper commenting on
the 'talent' program said:
"The large crowd which came to
hear a program of familiar music was
delighted with the Reeds' playing and
equally impressed by their charm . . .
Needless to say the financial return
from the program was more than
heartening; but even if it hadn't been,
the evening had its rewards in ways
not measurable in dollars and cents."

We had a .fine lunch and once again
weakened the rafters with our class song.
After trying to shout over the clatter of
dishes (it still can't be done), we ad-
journed to IVIaxine Garner's territory in
South Spencer for a post-luncheon meet-
ing and get-together.
Emily (Harris) Preyer wasn't there —
but it took 3.000 miles of ocean to keep
her away. The tresasurer's report caused
such prolonged and uncontrolled laughter
that it almost broke up the meeting.
When things calmed down, we discussed
suggestions for the use of our class funds.
It was decided that $25.00 be set aside
for the Sarah Atkinson Loan Fund and
the balance (about $400.00) be turned
over to the campus committee in charge
of aid to foreign students — to be used to
cover the expenses of a foreign student
at W. C. We "passed the hat" and added
nearly $50.00 more. Additional contri-
butions should be sent to Miss Bernice
Draper, Woman's College.
With the busines out of the way. we
set about "catching up " in earnest. Each
of us stood up and gave a quick — and
often hilarious — personal resume to bring
folks up to date. The long distance
prizes went to Mary (Cochrane) Austin
who flew from Pensacola and Jeanne
(Carey) Reynolds who came all the way
from Elmira. N. Y.

all the news to those of you who were
not able to come back "home" for re-

and worlds of fun. I'm sure we won't
ever forget it.
Until our next big reunion rolls
around. let's keep in touch with each
other via the Alumnae News. It will
make No. 15 even more fun.

Council of Colonial Williamsburg, Small
discussion groups on the alumni
magazines, fund-raising, faculty-student-
alumni relationships, and various classi-
fications of colleges and secondary schools
all with able leaders, constituted a large
part of the program.
Highlight of entertainment was the
performance of Paul Green's "The Com-
mon Glory," the formal banquet and
dance at Williamsburg Inn.

the council, presided at most of the ses-
sions. Mr. Chesley Worthington of

1941 Keunion Luncheon
The Class of '41 had a grand re-
union during the 5 7th Commencement.
We had luncheon in the Home Economics
Cafeteria. There were twenty-six of us
back and you can just imagine the chat-
ter that went on in our dining room.
Our group was especially honored, and
I'm not so sure but what we were the
only group so honored, as Marjorie Nor-
ton Bishop had brought her husband
with her, and he entered right into the
spirit of the day and seemingly had just
as good a time as we did. We sat at a
U-shaped table and had two lovely ar-.
rangements of blue and white flowers.
One of these had to be moved as more
and more of our classmates came in. It
f was real good to see so many familiar
faces, but we surely missed that of our
everlasting president. Lib Patten Braf-
ford, who was ill and could not get here.
She sent her greetings and good wishes,
though, to all of us. We were pleased
too, to have Miss Shivers as our guest.
Just like old times!
After lunch. Miss Shivers welcomed
us with a nice little speech and suggested
that each of us tell what we were doing
with ourselves now. We started with
Carolyn Willis — she is changing jobs this
summer, leaving the Baptist Hospital at
Winston-Salem for a bigger and better
job in Boston, and came on around the
table to Mary Miller who told us she
had come back to graduate all over again
— yes, she got her Master's Degree in
Home Economics this year. She is now
interior decorator at Ivey's in Charlotte.
Helen Williams told us she had 150
boys of her own — she is the only female
member of the teaching faculty at the
University of Virginia — teaching Span-
ish! Margaret Coit is just before having
a book published on John C. Calhoun,
and I could just go on and on about the
jobs, babies, housekeeping, etc., but I
was supposed to write only a short note
about the luncheon, and it has turned out
to be quite lengthy. I must say that we
had news of those who could not be
with us too. and learned of new names,
new babies, and new jobs. And we had
pictures to see too, each proud mama
having written on the back of the photo-
graphs the name and age of her offspring.
We really, sincerely hope that more
and more of us can get together at the
next reunion. We will be having our
tenth in 1951! My, how the time flies!

Josephine (Howard) Munson wrote
in June: "In November, 1946, I sailed
for Europe to join my husband. First
Lt. Arthur L. Munson, who at that
time was stationed in Weiden, a small
village in Germany bordering on
Czechoslovakia. For two years and
four months I was in Germany, living
in Weiden for four days, in Regens-
burg (Germany's oldest city, located
in Southern Germany — Bavaria — and
on the Danube), in Straubing, and
finally in Landshut which is two hours
from Munich, the capital of Bavaria.
While in Europe, I visited Strausburg
and Paris in France; Wels, Salzburg,
Linz, and Vienna in Austria; I was in
Prague, Czechoslovakia, three times
and in Pilsn once; I was on tour
through Italy and skiied in Switzer-
land. The experience, while at once
depressing, lonesome, and often mo-
notonous, was one I shall never forget.
There were many things to see, to
learn; things which the people of the
United States still do not know and
perhaps cannot appreciate. I have col-
lected insurmountable piles of notes
and shall try to write them into book
form in the near future. Since I have
been home these past three months, I
have made sixteen talks on Germany
to various civic organizations. Also,
I wrote and enacted the part of a
Czech girl in a radio play which was
broadcast over WFNC on May 15,
commemorating 'I Am An American'
day. There are still so many things
to say, so many things to write. I
shall leave that for my book and hope
that my classmates may share this
experience with me through the pages
of this book." Josephine is at home at

class thus far.

hope to have more of a collection of
class pictures next year for our meeting.

2 -COAT SYSTEM
This Devoe 2-Ccat Sy.stem doesn't
try to saddle or shirk. There arc
two definite jobs for outside paint
to do, and Devoe does them. Each
coat does its specific work. The first
coat locks the pores of the wood
like iron, seals it against sucking up
life-giving oils. The second coat is
built to laugh off ultra-violet sun
rays and weather, still sparkles
after several years.
